  • Catalogue Essay

    IWC released the limited edition Portugieser Minutenrepetition ref. 5240 with only 550 examples (50 in platinum, 250 in yellow gold and 250 in pink gold). The movement of this watch is rendered wondrously– both mechanically and aesthetically. Its supreme caliber allows the chiming sound of the minute repeater to form a lively piece of music. The nickel-plated manual movement, decorated with “Côtes de Genève” stripes, has a power reserve of approximately 43 hours. The tasteful finishing of the caliber is a striking spectacle to behold through the transparent case back.

    The watch is fresh to the market, to our best knowledge. Accompanied with stamped Guarantee and box, the present lot offers a brilliant opportunity for watch connoisseurs to possess a piece of excellence.
